I have never thought about myself driving and owning a Mini Hardtop 4 door S with JCW kits and rear spoiler, 18 inch alloy wheels, fully optioned with head-up-display, LED fog lights and headlights, very big center navigator display, headed seats, auto-folding mirrors, ambient lights, cross-punch leather seats, and much much much more....
With 11,000 miles and over 14 months of ownership, it has been no issues. Very easy to own and cost $0 for maintenance. BMW-Mini has 3 years maintenance for free as well for every new Mini you purchase. And the car performs very very well. Accelerates well, brakes superbly, handles curves as if eating breakfast, lunch and dinner, so easy!!! Try the Sport Mode and the car comes alive with firmer suspension that reminds me of my older M3. OMG!! I have received too many inquiries from people who happen to either drive next to me at stop lights or walking by my Mini when I am parking. OMG!! "You car is so cute and sporty!" "I like your car!" "Oh, your car is so adorable!" "How do you get this metallic blue/ sky blue color?" "Mind if we all take pictures with your car?" "What kind of car is this, we are just so attracted to it..."
At one point when I was at a Train Museum, 30 plus kids and 3 teachers were having field trip, all the kids and the teachers came over to my car and look and touch, they want pictures and photos of my car with them together!!!
It sits four adults between 5 foot and 5 foot seven of our family well. It can handle lots of grocery. We love the Mini Hardtop S four door. It is a blast to drive with a trouble-free ownership experience, and put smiles on your face when so many people also fall in love with your Mini.
